    Arriva "strike" - update on 06.12.21
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
     Following a ballot,   agreement has been reached between Arriva and the Drivers' Union - in consequence all Arriva connections from other parts of North Wales into the Snowdon Sherpa network included here have reverted to operating normally
  Gwynfor have made changes to the Sherpa timetables for Winter 2021-2022 commencing 1st November

    Basically the "S2" reverted to a 'one bus' operation similar to last winter,  BUT some journeys run slightly EARLIER than during the summer.  However the "S4" and "S97" services have been re-cast (still making limited connections at Pen-y-Pass),  whilst the "S1" and "S6" services have again been "suspended" for the winter..........
.........see below for the latest known information also updated other pages on this website

    In view of the late official information - at one time Operators were legally required to give at least 56 days notice of any change - ANY PAGE ON THIS WEBSITE DATED BEFORE 29th OCTOBER SHOUD BE REGARDED AS "STILL TO BE FULLY UPDATED"


    Please bookmark this page NOW to see if any further information has been made public - using the date below as a quick guide to check if this page has been amended since your last visit

Snowdon Sherpa Bus Timetables
unofficial website

    REMEMBER..........
    Due to so many last-minute changes to the various services in the area,  unfortunately many official websites (including the TravelineCymru "Journey Planner") continue to show journeys which have either been "CHANGED" or sometimes even "WITHDRAWN"
    Where known,  these are also included below as a warning - to help avoid you being caught out !!!


    Please bookmark and revisit nearer the time to check if there have been any further known changes since your last visit to this page

    Journeys shown on this website with a "strike through" line are still operating,  BUT it is NO LONGER possible to get a (bus) connection back to the start location of the page - eg
 1234 

    Thrughout Snowdonia there are unfortunately numerous cases of "sub-standard" connections which are NOT recognised by the TravelineCymru "Journey Planner"
(as they are less than 5 minutes) - eg
17.45 17.49
    Although this website strongly advises you NOT to 'chance' them..........
..........they are included to draw your attention to the fact that if everything is 'spot on time' and you are "very quick" - it can sometimes get you to your destination considerably earlier



This "unofficial" website attempts to show what is available..... and to encourage greater use of the network --- also includes some suggested " trips round Snowdonia - without your car"
